Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fukuyama's profound inquiry leads the reader to the question of whether humanity will eventually reach a stable state in which it is at last completely satisfied, or whether there is something about the condition of humans that will always lead them to smash this ultimate equilibrium and plunge the world back into chaos.

Review:

"Awsome....A landmark work....Profoundly realistic and important....Supremely timely and cogent....The first book to fully fathom the depth and range of the changes now sweeping through the world." George Gilder, Washington Post Book World

Review:

"Bold, lucid, scandalously brilliant. Until now, the triumph of the West was merely a fact. Fukuyama has given it a deep and highly original meaning." Charles Krauthammer

Review:

"Provocative and elegant....complex and interesting....Fukuyama is to be applauded for posing important questions in serious and stimulating ways." Ronald Steel, USA Today

Review:

"Clearly written....Immensely ambitious....A tightly argued work of political philosophy....Fukuyama deserves to have his argument taken seriously." William H. McNeill, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"At once exhilarating and sobering....His subject is the place of America, and the American idea, in the stream of history." George F. Will

Review:

"The End of History held Me Rapt....Fukuyama reasons elegantly....He presents his case strongly and with assurance." Richard Lourie, Boston Globe

Review:

"Extraordinary....Controversial....A Superb book. Whether or not one accepts his thesis, he has injected serious political philosophy into the discussion of political affairs and thereby significantly enriched it." Mackubin Thomas Owens, Washington Times

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 391-401) and index.
